I only found one book that I could actually get through, but it is written by a controversial guy who many people consider an out-of-touch war hawk.

https://www.amazon.com/Basic-Economics-Thomas-Sowell/dp/0465...

But the book itself was written before he became controversial, is VERY readable and approachable, and I would particularly recommend it if you have already tried to learn economics before and stopped because you could not stand the sheer tedium.

Also, the other commenters are right about how the stuff you read in microeconomics simply wouldn't scale to macro (so don't expect it to help you invest and stuff).
